The French drink, smoke and eat more fat than anyone in the world, yet they live longer and have fewer heart problems than the English and the Americans. They work 35-hour weeks and take seven weeks' paid holiday each year, yet they are the world's fourth-biggest economic power. So how do they do it? From a distance modern France looks like a riddle. It is both rigidly authoritarian, yet incredibly inventive; traditional (even archaic) yet modern; lacking clout on the international stage yet still hugely influential. But with the observations, anecdotes and analysis of the authors, who spent nearly three years living in France, it begins to makes sense. 'Sixty Million Frenchmen Can't Be Wrong' is a journey into the French heart, mind and soul. This book reveals French ideas about land, food, privacy and language and weaves together the threads of French society, uncovering the essence of life in France and giving, for the first time, a complete picture of the French.

An engaging exploration of the style that permeates all things French—perfect for anyone looking to achieve that classic French flair For Harriet Welty Rochefort, an American who has lived in France for many years with her very French husband, it's clear that the French truly are singular in the way they live, act, and think—from the lightness of their pastries to the refinement of their Hermes scarves. They simply exude a certain je ne sais quoi that is a veritable art form. The French revel in the moment, appreciate the time spent in preparing a perfect feast, pay attention to the slightest detail--whether flowers on the table or a knockout accessory on a simple outfit--and work hard when not enjoying their (considerable) leisure time without an ounce of guilt. Their joie de vivre can come where you least expect it: for the French it's better to have a chagrin d'amour than no amour at all, and for the Frenchman a day without discord is a day without a kick. They have fun (yes, fun !) when they fuss and feud, squabble and shrug. When it comes to joie de vivre, Harriet is convinced the French are unbeatable. With good humor and genuine affection for the prickly, paradoxical, and pleasure-seeking Gauls, she takes the reader on her own personal journey through the often byzantine French mindset, sharing tips and tricks such as how to diet like a Frenchwoman and project confidence like a true Parisienne. In her signature warm, witty, and entertaining voice, Harriet shows how joie de vivre permeates the French way of life, precisely because it doesn't include a "pursuit of happiness." Fortunately, she discovered, you don't have to "pursue" happiness in France. It pursues you.

Why do the French like talking about ‘the decline of France’? Why does broaching a subject like money end all discussion? Why do the French become so aroused debating the merits and qualities of their own language? Julie Barlow and Jean- Benoît Nadeau spent a decade travelling to and living in Paris. Yet one important lesson never seemed to sink in: how to converse comfortably with the French, even when you speak their language. Through encounters with school principals, city-hall civil servants, old friends and business acquaintances during their time living in France with their twin daughters, Julie and Jean-Benoît explain why, culturally and historically, talking to the French is not about communicating or being nice. It's about being interesting. After reading The Bonjour Effect, even readers with only a smattering of French will be able to hold their own the next time they are in a bistro on the Left Bank, on a wine tour in Bourdeaux or on a beach on the Côte d'Azur.

GENE WEINGARTEN IS THE O. HENRY OF AMERICAN JOURNALISM Simply the best storyteller around, Weingarten describes the world as you think it is before revealing how it actually is—in narratives that are by turns hilarious, heartwarming, and provocative, but always memorable. Millions of people know the title piece about violinist Joshua Bell, which originally began as a stunt: What would happen if you put a world-class musician outside a Washington, D.C., subway station to play for spare change? Would anyone even notice? The answer was no. Weingarten’s story went viral, becoming a widely referenced lesson about life lived too quickly. Other classic stories—the one about “The Great Zucchini,” a wildly popular but personally flawed children’s entertainer; the search for the official “Armpit of America”; a profile of the typical American nonvoter—all of them reveal as much about their readers as they do their subjects.

هذا الكتاب ليس عن الحبشة ، وانما هو سجل لرحلة استمرت ثلاثة أشهر على ظهر بغل الكتاب هو قصة ما جرى للسيد هارولد جونز ، المصور السينمائي والمؤلفه معه ، طوال مسافة تقدر بنحو ألف ومائة ميل ، قطعوا هذه المسافة معاً الجبال والأنهار والغابات والصحاري بحثاً عن مادة صالحة للتصوير ، الكتاب عبارة عن قصة مغامرات خطيرة ورعناء ، لكل ما تم مشاهدته وسماعه اثناء الرحلة ، وما فعلاه اثناء المسافة ما بين البحر الأحمر والنيل الأزرق ، لكن هذه الرحلة مجرد انطباع عن الحبشة كما بدت للمؤلفة من الخيمة ومن فوق ظهر البغل .

يقول الكاتب: ضع محلَّ هذهِ النقطِ النعتَ الذي تُريدهُ، فأنا قدْ حلفتُ أنْ لا أكتبَ مقدمةً لكتابٍ من كتبي، وأبيتُ أنْ أستجدي المقدماتِ ولو من أفلاطون، وامتنعتُ عنْ أن أقُدِّمَ شاعرًا أو كاتبًا إلى القارئ، وسواء عندي أكان قد خملَ ذكرُهُ أم طارَ صيته حتى اختفى خلف الغيوم. ، إنها كلمة أريد أن )أعترف) لك بها ، فأطلعك في هذا الديوان على نزعاتي كلها ، بل على دخيلة نفسي حتى على (الأسرار) المكتومة منها. ، عود فأقول لك هذه كلمة لا مقدِّمة وبعدُ، فاعلم يا عزيزي — رعاكَ للهُ وحفظني وحفظكَ — أن ديواني هذا ليس سلَّةَ مشمش (لِأوجِّهَها) لك، فلا أنا بائعٌ ولا أنت شارٍ، لا يا أخي، إنً هذا الديوان رسالة … عفوًا! هو فكرةٌ عشتُ بها زمنًا رغدًا، وما زلت أحِنُّ إليها، وأنا على هواها. حالي معها كحالِ الرجلِ معَ صاحبتهِ، قد تتنكَّر له، وقد يجفوها، ولكنَّهما في الحالينِ، حال الرضا والغضب، واليسر والعسر، حبيبانِ، ودودانِ، متيَّمان، مولَّهان، ولولا ذلك لم يتشاكسا، أؤكِّد لك أني) لم أحرد) يومًا كاملًا، أي لم تغربِ الشمسُ على غضبي؛ ولهذا ها أنا أضع بين يديك الكريمتين قصائدي، كما قلتها في وقتها، لم أحكك ولم
